Oscar did well in the dressage this afternoon. It has been pouring rain heavily for the last 24 hours and the footing was terrible. I felt like it was hard to show off his trot as he was slipping and sliding. I was still very please with his score of 46. A few experts thought I was harshly marked, but I think it was about right.
It looks like a testing course tomorrow. I plan to ride him with a good rhythm throughout the course, and try not to use him up too early.
Wish me luck!
